Having completed a lovely hand painted country kitchen in this clients Victorian Rectory, we were asked to continue refurbishing their elegant period home by re-instating traditional wooden panelling in the Entrance Hall, up the stairs and through-out the landing. The panelling also continued in the upstairs family bathroom.
The Rectory had maintained some of its original features such as deep panelled door linings to the super thick retaining walls and lovely deep, traditional mouldings and skirtings. The original door linings consisted of three rectangular panels, with the bottom two panels being vertical, then a smaller, horizontal panel on top. We therefore echoed this design in the entrance hall and landing, with half height panelling consisting of just one vertical, then one smaller horizontal panel above, with lovely deep skirtings below. The moulding details echoed the original mouldings found elsewhere in the property.
The panelling up the stairs changed to single rectangular panels, with a deep capping, the width of the door frames above. With the original stair string plastered into the wall, the skirting was carefully scribed over each aged and now quite undulating stair tread. All panelling was painted in a soft white using a hardwearing, good quality, eggshell paint.
